Top Tips from our team for taking measurements:

  • George – ‘’Make sure you allow operational clearances for your pallets when calculating the number of beam levels in the height.’’
  • Rob – ‘’You will need to allow 75 to 100mm clearance between each pallet on a beam level.’’
  • Dave – ‘’Use a rigid tape measure, if you have one available this will make it a whole lot easier as you will be able to reach right to the top and back of the rack.’’
  • Matt – ‘’Do a simple sketch, I’m not the best at drawing so I do mean simple. But I always find it helpful when I’m measuring up so I can write the dimensions and visualise the rack.’’
  • Dennis – ‘’You need to allow 50mm overhang for your pallets at the front and rear of your racking, to be in line with SEMA i.e if you pallet is 1000mm Deep, you need a 900mm Deep rack.’’
